    I don't have food allergies or am not picky so I really like the prix fixe meals. I'm definitely going to try the omakase next time.

    We did the 7-course chef's tasting, which is off menu and different every day. Overall the six meal courses were spectacular, though the dessert (seventh course) was good, not great.

    What a fun place to eat. We had the seven course "chef's choice" meal. Big expense for us but we knew it'd be fun when the waiter explained it to us. We really enjoyed the casual atmosphere while the food was on point. There aren't many places we find where all the pieces come together so well.

    The multiple level tasting menu scheme is novel and works well. The Japanese themed cocktail list was well done and well executed. We had the 7 course chef's tasting. The food was beautifully presented and portioned well. The beverage paring (sakes and wines) worked really well. It truly is Japanese comfort food. It won't surprise you but is lovely and well executed at a nice price point.

    This is a very special restaurant. We selected the seven course option with wine pairings. All of the courses were amazing, and the wine pairings, especially the Sake, were good selections. The service was outstanding, the ambiance soothing and comfortable but with a touch of elegance. Highly recommend this.

    We chose the Chef selection option and enjoyed every dish. My friend had seen the Chef on "next iron chef" competition on Food Network. Asian food is not her favorite cuisine but she was intrigued by the flavors he put together. We enjoyed every course but my favorite was the octopus salad. Each dish was artistically presented. Will definitely return when next in Seattle.

    Our first time dining here. Food was delicious, service was good but not very personable. We got the beverage pairing, which was good but was never explained to us... just told it was a ‘Chardonnay.’ Our table was between 2 other couples; my husband and I had a hard time hearing each other the whole time. Overall good experience. We will return but try the bar next time!

    While in the past, when I had the smaller course dinner I would rate Adana much higher, the seven course dinner with the wine pairing was not as good. While some courses were great, Not all the dishes were as good.

    For a Japanese restaurant aspiring to be at the upper tier in Seattle, the food was adequate but not exceptional. The sashimi course of scallop was quite minimal and did not particular feature the flavors of the scallop. The music choice is completely out of synch with what I expect in a fine Japanese restaurant or even Japanese pub. The wait staff was great, food came in a timely manner, although a refill of our sake carafe took far too long.

    Adana is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary. The food was amazing, the service is great and the ambiance is perfectly romantic. Easy to see and hear your partner without the room being overlit or without background music. We had a perfect time. Definitely splurge on the 7-course tasting menu! It was DIVINE.

    Was excited to try the tasting menu. Food was unfortunately very “one note”. Begging for some salt and spice. Mushroom Katsu was my favorite. Uni rissoto was my least favorite. Very expensive for what it was. And calling that dessert flan was an affront to my family. I won’t be back

    Great experience all around. The since of entry and ambiance are amazing, along with a show kitchen. Our server was attentive to all our needs but forgot her name....sorry! We ordered the octopus and also Lima bean appetizers both were delicious. We were skeptical on the Lima bean but we both fought over it. The cod entree was creative and presented well. We brought our own special bottle of wine and $20 corkage. This is a must visit restaurant

    A mile up Pike into Capitol Hill from my hotel ... a bohemian contender neighborhood for my old hometown Greenwich Village ... or Brooklyn’s current chic hipster iteration ... superior to present day SF (blasphemy!) ... to dine at this modern Asian with an utterly original & delicious pivot on each of it’s 3 courses ... for me ::: kabocha squash 3 ways (one with mustard), salmon finished in aged vinegar with beets ... and baked black cod atop yam purée. I had intended upon presenting images of all, but I was tripping from the first course, so only the kabocha appears. 5*****

The creme brulee was the best I've had across Seattle! The service was fantastic as well! We'll be back just to try the lounge menu soon!

    7 course tasting menu was excellent, made with quality ingredients, creativity and flavor that you would love to replicate at home, but after knowing some of the steps and time it takes, you are better off just going back!

    We love Chef Nakajima’s carefully conceived and beautifully executed plates. 3/5/7 course menus or ala carte. Since we are small eaters, usually opt for the 3 course menu. Octopus tender but not over-cooked, fried chicken w/soy marinade has depth of flavor. Tempura anything spoils you for that dish anywhere else: No greasy or limp veggies, no! Salmon and black cod delectable. Portions are small by American standards. Each dish arrives on lovely and different ceramics or boards, which typical in a Japanese restaurant. Good whiskey and sake list, although it has steep price curve. Be prepared. Service was unobtrusive and spot on... There is a feel-good vibe with moderate noise level. Chef owner oversees all the wonder. They also cater.
